Bass Ponds EAW

Bass Ponds EAW

US Army Corps of Engineers Bass Ponds, Marsh and Wetland Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project

Proposed project overview:  The US Army Corps of Engineers is proposing to improve habitat within the Wilkie Unit of the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge.  The Refuge is located in northern Shakopee and Savage city limits.  The area experiences a lack of seasonal variability in water levels which has resulted in reduced wetland habitat quality, aquatic plant diversity, and quality habitat for migratory waterbirds.  Water level management features (stoplog structures, earthen plugs) are proposed to improve habitat.

Proposed project status:  The US Army Corps of Engineers have completed the EAW document and Scott County has published the EAW for public review on April 29, 2019.  The public review period will end on May 29, 2019 at 4:30 PM.
